Volunteer at PrideFest

Volunteers are needed for PrideFest in June 2022! Join our team!

We strive to create a safe, respectful, and encouraging environment for our volunteers.

Volunteers are needed Wednesday through Sunday, June 1st - 5th to help in a variety of areas, such as set up and tear down, ticket scanning at the gate, security checks, assisting patrons at the info booth, and more!

Sign up for as many shifts as you would like, (and honestly feel you can handle.)

*Please know we that while we can not guarantee a specific area for you to be in, we will do our best to place you where you’ll feel most comfortable.

And you’ll be very comfortable in your VOLUNTEER T-Shirt!  

Each shift includes a volunteer t shirt, complimentary food & snacks, and admission to the festival on the day you volunteer, as well as other perks and giveaways!

PrideFest Milwaukee is made possible by volunteers like YOU!

simple things to remember:

  • Have questions? Always ask. We are here to help
  • We work hard to be considerate of your personal preferences, and provide you with a suitable work assignment. (Often, we need specific spots filled, and appreciate you jumping in to assist!)
  • You’ll have a manager, ( keep in touch with volunteer@pridefest.com) as well as other team leaders on hand to assist with questions, as well as training pre-festival. 
  • Be confident in your intent to volunteer. There’s nothing worse than waiting for a much needed volunteer to check-in, and never hearing from them. 
  • There are rules for a reason. Follow them.
  • Be respectful and kind to one another.
  • You do NOT need to be LGBTQ+ to volunteer. Just open, and respectful, as well as committed. 
  • There are open volunteer positions for those under 18 years of age. You will need parental consent to participate. Write us at volunteer@pridefest.com
  • This is a wonderful opportunity for you to learn more about the organizations in the community, including your host, Milwaukee Pride, Inc.
  • Most of the main team is running on very little sleep over the weekend, but we always stress, however: GET YOUR REST AND STAY HYDRATED
  • This is YOUR weekend too, have fun. (just please work your shift first!)
  • Realize that you are making a difference.

Volunteer Sign Up Form

As a weekend volunteer for PrideFest Milwaukee, you will encounter a very robust, engaged, dedicated, often silly, but always passionate production team, and board of directors who have worked non-stop for a year to present this 3-day event.

Many of you are familiar faces, and have been part of the weekend family of volunteers for years. Always lovely to see you! Several of you will realize by weekend’s end that would like to do MORE. This is great, as Milwaukee Pride holds other events throughout the year, where we can always benefit from a few extra helping hands. And, we often need more positions filled on the main production team. Just ask your weekend volunteer director about our various opportunities to join the larger team!

Please fill out the form below and someone will contact you with more information.
